Welcome! Today I have three new members of the Old Farmhouse Gathering Team. So please take a minute to visit their shops, and give them a big welcome. The first shop is Log Cabin Memories, where you will find Mary Jane hand painted items. She paints with oils and acrylics on items she finds. Check out the chalkboard with sunflowers and ribbons. Then stop by and visit A Touch of Sunshine. Tammy cuts wood using her own patterns, and paints them up. Love the Fall wood letters. The last shop belongs to Ella from Dolls and Bunnies, and she comes to us from Israel. She makes dolls and bunnies, her work is just wonderful. My favorite is Basil the Country Mouse. These are the kind of mice we need in our home, and not the other kind. All three shops offer different items, and I know you will find your own favorites. So please give them a heart, and keep them in mind for all of your gift giving.

Welcome to what is is Wednesday. Sorry I missed last week, but my military kids where home! We had a great visit, and now I'm trying to get my life caught up. This week I have a Cream Separator. It was used to separate the milk from the cream, using a crank, the milk which is heavier would stay on the sides, while the cream which is lighter would drain out the center. Remember their is light cream and heavy cream also. Some for your coffee and some to be beaten for your pie. Before the separator was invented milk would be aloud to sit for the cream to float to the top. In the summer months the milk would sour. The separator would speed up the processes, so no more sour milk. Today I have turned it into a plant stand. I found this down the road at an estate sale, when Grandma (everyone called my neighbor Grandma) passed away, and her home was sold. I love my separator, and so glad I have found a home for it.

Welcome friends! Today please visit Connie from Life Shades. She does pencil drawings of wild life, kids, kids at war, and veterans. My favorite is a lady hugging a solider. To me it is a mother giving her son a big hug and welcome home. Something very dear to my heart. Her work comes in a 8 x 10 or 5 x 7 size, plus some note cards. These are prints of her original work. When you are done visiting her shop, please type in drat dirtroadteam into the search bar on Etsy to find more very talented artist, all coming from small towns, and many living on a dirt road.
